Following on Francois' post asking about "the value of the fragment as a
genre in Humanities Computing" I would also ask if anyone knows of
fragmentary web sites that were deliberately created as fragments - to be
the grottoes of the Internet.

The Internet Archive http://www.archive.org/ is one place to find old
sites. Ghost Sties has essays and images of failed web sites
http://www.disobey.com/ghostsites/mef.shtml. But, can anyone think of
fragmentary sites like follies - designed to look like ancient ruins?
